I didnt know it was purchased!!   But he only had it for three days, he had it all timed out so that it wasn’t burning a whole in his pocket.

I know he got the diamond sometime in February, but I think he found the setting a month later or so.  So with the wait it might take to get the ring, I’d say about a month!? (He asked in May)

He told me after the proposal that he’d been holding onto the ring for about a month. When I asked what made him finally decide to buy the ring he would only say "It felt like it was the right time to do it." 🙂

The mister only had the ring for a couple of days. He picked it up while I was on vacation with my family, and the night I got back he proposed!

He told me that he had wanted to wait until the following weekend, but he was too excited! 🙂

A couple weeks- he wanted to plan something special, but either he got lazy or just couldn’t wait.

1 week. But it was several months that I knew about it while he was picking it out and trying to get it.

I’m stil waiting for him to get it, but it’s looking like that will happen at the end of April now. I don’t expect he’ll hold on to it too long after it’s ready, since we’ve been working on this together from the beginning and he’s excited to buy it for me. 🙂

I knew he had it for 3 months before the proposal. And I knew he had showed his mom and my best friend! It was definitely hard being patient knowing that it was coming in the near future, but totally worth it in the end! 🙂

I am a very impatient person so once we started looking at rings and found one, I was like OK let’s do this, no point in waiting. He went and bought the ring the next day in this elaborate, ‘I lost my wallet, riding around the subways of Boston" story. My first though of course was that he went to get the ring. But then he totally acted grumpy all night and distressed (and frankly, it’s not out of character for him to lose his wallet –  it happens quite often) and I truly started to believe him. So then in my impatient way, I thought we should immediately keep looking for a ring. We didn’t and I got crabbier and crabbier because I felt like he didn’t really care to marry me because he wasn’t looking. And he didn’t want to give me the ring because I was so crabby. He had it for 3 days before I came out of my grumpy mood and he pulled out the ring!

I didn’t know that he purchased the ring and I thought that I would definitely know because I knew that he was purchasing it from Portland (no sales tax) and he lives in San Francisco. So when he actually proposed, I was totally stunned b/c I did not know that he secretly flew to Portland for the day! anyways, I think it was about a month before he proposed
